User Guide to the Portfolio Supplementary Estimates Statements
The purpose of the 2014–15 Portfolio Supplementary Estimates Statements (PSES) is to inform Senators, Members of Parliament and the public of the proposed allocation of additional resources to Government outcomes by agencies within the portfolio.
The PSES facilitate understanding of the proposed appropriations in ACT Government Loan Bill 2014. In this sense the PSES is declared by the Appropriation Acts to be a ‘relevant document’ to the interpretation of the Acts according to section 15AB of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.
ACT Government Loan Bill 2014, which follows on from Appropriation Bill (No. 2) tabled at Budget, will provide additional expenditure authority in respect of the 2014–15 financial year for the provision of a concessional loan to the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) government for the purposes of undertaking its loose-fill asbestos remediation programme.
